    I though you had many more suits! I'd slowly phase out the old ill-fitting suits and replace them for new ones. When you buy that Formosa, sell one Zegna, and put that money towards it, and so forth.

    I really have to wonder if I have grew out of these suits and now they're too small or if they were ill-fitting to being with.

    I'm betting it's the latter one, unless you gained a significant amount of muscle.

    That probably mostly went to the waist/seat areas, so it means your jackets would still be fine in the shoulders and chest, which they're not. I think you've always been a 40R, even before the weight gain!

    Thx! That actually makes a lot of sense @Monkeyface
    I do not know why I was recommended 38R and why I even got 38R.
    Good thing I won't be wasting $3k on ill-fitting suits anymore.
    40R it is from here on out! [​IMG]

    Yup.
    Lessen the carbs.
    Sprint/Walk/Run 4.5 miles per day.
    So sugar from cookies or sodas.
    Eat a good breakfast, decrease portion size for lunch and dinner.
    Dumbbell squats and jump ropes (300~500)
    on a daily basis.

    Since we're on the topic, I am at 176 lb as of this morning. 1 lb away from my original 10 lb loss goal! [​IMG]

    I am updating my goal to roughly 172 lb for now, we'll see how all my pants/jackets fit then.

    That's awesome! Glad it worked out! Now start introducing a bit more weightlifting, it'll be easier to stay at that weight with some extra muscle.

    Thank goodness, I am getting sick and tired of cardio. (J/K, I know I need to keep doing it . . . I still hate it though)

    2lbs a week is more reasonable.
